For the code that is time consuming but easy, can you just recruit volunteer players, tell them what to do then let them spend the hours necessary doing any of the code that is time consuming because it is repetitive?

Coder: Okay here is the directery with all the item source codes. Please examine and adjust the values of item numbers 4,567 through 86,789 to be in line with the current standards as explained. And flag any items that dont fall clearly within the standardization protocols.

Players: Okay!

If it were as simple as replacing values we could do that with a text editor with replace in files function.

It's a nice thought that I could just get someone else to do all the drudgery bits of my coding.

Unfortunately, I imagine that it wouldn't save me that much time, by the time I'd helped someone else understand enough of the labyrinthine workings of my lizardy mind to be able to do what I wanted.

And then, I really doubt anyone would *really* want the job of all the dull bits of coding with none of the fun...

That said, I'll be working on some reward items for my new area soon, and would welcome suggestions for bits of EQ that people would like to see available in the higher end of the game. Not so much style and descriptions - those will be linked to the area theme - more things like: "Clerics really need some +5 boots with a wisdom bonus!"

I would be willing to do the dull bits if I knew how.

For anybody interested in doing some of the dull bits of coding.. I'm about to implement a large scale random item generator that makes all sorts of weapons and armor. So I could use some description fragments for weapons of all sorts, armors of all sorts, for special messages of all sorts for weapons and armor. Don't worry about color codes, I've created a daemon that can automatically color stuff for specifically this purpose.

So, you can either make descriptions for a whole item or just parts of a description, or however you want to do it. If you make descriptions for specials, keep in mind that each special requires 3 different descriptions. One for what the person using the item sees, one for what the target of the action sees, and one for what everybody else in the room sees. Please try to limit typos and spelling errors.

Also I suppose we could use lore as well.

Here's a template anyone can fill in:
Item common description (inventory view, not identified):
Item short description (inventory view, identified)
Item long description (what you get when you examine the item):
Item alternate IDs (other ids you can use to affect the item: i.e. Sword, weapon, two-handed sword, two-handed, two handed, beat stick):
Special user view (what the wielder/wearer sees when the special goes off)
Special target view (what the target sees when the special goes off)
Special bystander view (what someone else in the room sees when the special goes off)
Body slot/proficiency (body slot for armor, prof for weapon):
Lore:

Ares this was off the top of my head so feel free to modify or update and add more stuff like armor type and weapons type.

Just weapons and armor? None of the other slots?

By armor, I mean anything you might wear. With the possible exception of rings.

Oh good. I'll get right on it. And note I am willing to give help, even though I find the idea , at least my gut reaction to the idea, of a random item generator to be terrible, apocalyptically so.

I'm reasonably sure that I just saw a post from you a few days back, Verbannon, that mentioned scattering items that weren't super great throughout an area, instead of just having them at the end. At least I think that was your post.

Hey I dont want this to be an argument. I'll just try to clarify what I meant. I meant when equiping the dungeon mooks. Give them generic stuff, like the kind of stuff players could make for themselves with the magic item creation system. And just make good items for the end of the dungeon, the dungeon secret treasure room and one good item to be rarely found through constant searching.

INSTEAD of trying to give everything something special.

Now in regards to your system, my gut reaction, imagined that this was going to be used for the random treasure generator. Or something similar. Maybe as a,way to compketely replace dungeon loot.

But if you are going to use it as a way of quickly equiping mooks, maybe to help avatars along. Then my gut says tyats a good thing and fully supports.

And I do mean my gut literally. It tightens and hurts a bit when it disagrees wuth something and relaxes when it doesnt.

So you need mass produced magical equipment, simple enough. Also to help that along there are already a good deal of items in the game designed with a generic feel to them in case you dont know. Weapons in The Dark Forest dropped by the beetles, hats and helmets dropped all over the place, and the items in Kinarro And synwhatever given as a reward for their fetch quest.

And Ill go ahead and start generating magical equipment, with lore linkig it to various cities, races or old armies. To start with Ill generate one type of each weapon and equilment with each type of crafting material in the game

PostPosted: Thu Mar 30, 2017 6:35 am    Post subject: Item Generator Reply with quote

Random item generators are generally just used for filler items, maybe with oddball stat and bonus numbers generated for characters with weird class combinations so they might not otherwise find the sort of bonuses that they're looking for for their character. It's not meant to replace the loot that we create specific to an area.

Some of the existing random items are probably good enough to keep, description wise. Some of them need some work in the description department. All of them (along with about 90% of the total items) need updating to match the standards.

Also, don't feel obligated to write anything you don't want to write. This is strictly voluntary.

You should make a random equip command for avatar use with it
Anyway here is my first wave of items. These are steel and prismatic hide head slot items. Next I'll do steel and prismatic hide neck slot items.

Item common description (inventory view, not identified): A %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ open faced burgonet
Item short description (inventory view, identified): Omrick Wrought %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ open faced burgonet
Item long description (what you get when you examine the item): This helmet has a large peak projecting upwards at an angle from the opening to protect the eyes. Running back from that peak a simple crest splits the helmet that looks like it was made by simply hammering the two halves of the helmet together. A flange hangs from the helmet to protect the cheeks and neck. There is no visor. Just inside the helmet the symbol of Tempus is stamped as well as the text "Omrick XXXII"
Item alternate IDs (other ids you can use to affect the item: i.e. Sword, weapon, two-handed sword, two-handed, two handed, beat stick): helmet, steel helmet, burgonet, steel burgonet, a steel open faced burgonet, omrick wrought steel open faced burgonet
Special user view (what the wielder/wearer sees when the special goes off): Your opponent takes dead aim at your unprotected face! Miraculously his blow just scratches you!
Special target view (what the target sees when the special goes off): Something saps the power from your blow as you strike at your opponent's foolishly unprotected face!
Special bystander view (what someone else in the room sees when the special goes off): Attacker strikes what is sure to be a killing blow to the face of his opponent. A look of shock crosses attacker's face as he draws back leaving only a scratch.
Effect: Sometimes when an enemy rolls a crit, the helmet will turn it into a normal hit.
Body slot/proficiency (body slot for armor, prof for weapon): Medium Armor Head
Lore: The priesthood of Tempus foregoes the use of visors on their helmets because their god does use a visor. A courageous act of faith that leaves many of them dead with arrows in their face. To help remedy this, many an Omrick, through prayer or enchantment, have made helmets warded with invisible protection for the face.

Item common description (inventory view, not identified): A %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ Barbute
Item short description (inventory view, identified)A Mastercrafted %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ Barbute
Item long description (what you get when you examine the item):This helmet is extremely well crafted though not beautiful. Marks can be seen on the helmet where flaws were painstakingly worked out. If your imagination isn't playing tricks with you it seems is is also both harder and lighter than it should be. It is a close fitting %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ helmet with only a T Shaped opening in its front to allow sight and breathing.
Item alternate IDs (other ids you can use to affect the item: i.e. Sword, weapon, two-handed sword, two-handed, two handed, beat stick):helmet, steel helmet, steel barbute, barbute, A Mastercrafted Steel Barbute
Effect: Some random bonus.
Body slot/proficiency (body slot for armor, prof for weapon):Heavy Armor Head
Lore: Steel is most commonly worked by human smiths. Human craft lacks the depth of skill of the dwarves and the elegant beauty of the elves. But the Arms and Armor of a human mastersmith are made with a passionate love for their craft that even the dwarves may rarely match. This love and passion and the pouring of their soul into every piece they make, often grants their equipment a magical power all of its own. This is a known fact and has creates a lesser known religious conflict between the human smiths of the land. For although steel is blessed by Tempus, Passion is driven by Kossuth. And when it comes time to have the arms blessed it is common to see three priests called, A Grumbarite and either a Kossuth or a Tempusian Priest are called. For to call both would be to guarantee violence, but to call only one would be seen as an insult to the other.


Item common description (inventory view, not identified): A %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ Coif
Item short description (inventory view, identified)A Mastercrafted %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ Coif

If your imagination isn't playing tricks with you it seems is is also both harder and lighter than it should be. It is a coif made of riveted %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ rings.

Special user view (what the wielder/wearer sees when the special goes off): When your opponent strikes your helmet, it doesn't hurt anymore than being struck in a dream hurts.
Special target view (what the target sees when the special goes off): Your strike to your opponent's helmeted head fails to even wiggle him.

Next will be Torso. I spent a long time trying to think of more neck options then collar, cloak and cape. But couldn't. Most neck armor is just a part of a larger suit of armor.

tem common description (inventory view, not identified): A %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ collar
Item short description (inventory view, identified)A Mastercrafted%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ Collar
Item long description (what you get when you examine the item): This is a simple but well forged ring of %^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^st%^RESET%^ee%^BOLD%^%^BLACK%^l%^RESET%^ that fits around the neck. The collar are actually eight quarter rings of steel attached to each other with rivets so that the collar can bend and twist adequately along with the neck. The rivet at the back of the neck can be unclasped to allow the collar to open.
Item alternate IDs (other ids you can use to affect the item: i.e. Sword, weapon, two-handed sword, two-handed, two handed, beat stick): steel collar, collar, A Masterworked Steel Collar, Masterworked Steel Collar, Masterworked Collar
Effect: +1 armor and a it gives damage resist against stabs that scales up as the item itself gets stronger. Not sure what would be balanced numbers there.
Body slot/proficiency (body slot for armor, prof for weapon): Neck
Lore: Steel is most commonly worked by human smiths. Human craft lacks the depth of skill of the dwarves and the elegant beauty of the elves. But the Arms and Armor of a human mastersmith are made with a passionate love for their craft that even the dwarves may rarely match. This love and passion and the pouring of their soul into every piece they make, often grants their equipment a magical power all of its own. This is a known fact and has creates a lesser known religious conflict between the human smiths of the land. For although steel is blessed by Tempus, Passion is driven by Kossuth. And when it comes time to have the arms blessed it is common to see three priests called, A Grumbarite and either a Kossuth or a Tempusian Priest are called. For to call both would be to guarantee violence, but to call only one would be seen as an insult to the other.

Item common description (inventory view, not identified): A %^BOLD%^%^RED%^Pr%^ORANGE%^is%^GREEN%^ma%^BLUE%^ti%^MAGENTA%^c%^RESET%^ Leather Cape
Item short description (inventory view, identified)A Mastercrafted ):%^BOLD%^%^RED%^Pr%^ORANGE%^is%^GREEN%^ma%^BLUE%^ti%^MAGENTA%^c%^RESET%^ Leather Cape
Item long description (what you get when you examine the item): This is a %^BOLD%^%^RED%^Pr%^ORANGE%^is%^GREEN%^ma%^BLUE%^ti%^MAGENTA%^c%^RESET%^ leather cape that flows down to cover the back and flares out to either side dramatically. The leather is of a strange shimmering %^BOLD%^%^RED%^Pr%^ORANGE%^is%^GREEN%^ma%^BLUE%^ti%^MAGENTA%^c%^RESET%^ quality, when worn or touched, instead of a texture, it feels like touching something in a dream. Where its more like a remembered sense of what it should feel like then what it actually does. When you move, the fabric flows and flares sometimes in a delayed fashion and sometimes accelerated.
Item alternate IDs (other ids you can use to affect the item: i.e. Sword, weapon, two-handed sword, two-handed, two handed, beat stick):cape, leather cape, A Mastercrafted Prismatic Leather cape, Prismatic Leather cape, prismatic leather cape
Special user view (what the wielder/wearer sees when the special goes off) (Attacker) seems distracted by your cape.
Special target view (what the target sees when the special goes off) (Defender's) cape flares and a long forgotten terrifying nightmare or wonderous dream flashes within its prismatic folds. You are lost for a moment as memories of the dream/nightmare consume you/you push aside such distractions and focus on your task.
Special bystander view (what someone else in the room sees when the special goes off) Defender's cape flares and (Attacker) seems distracted.
Effect: Occassionally the cape will force an easy dc will save, if the save is failed the targetted enemy will be stunned for a round.
Body slot/proficiency (body slot for armor, prof for weapon): Neck

Item short description (inventory view, identified)A Mastercrafted %^BOLD%^%^RED%^Pr%^ORANGE%^is%^GREEN%^ma%^BLUE%^ti%^MAGENTA%^c%^RESET%^ Leather Cloak
Item long description (what you get when you examine the item): This is a %^BOLD%^%^RED%^Pr%^ORANGE%^is%^GREEN%^ma%^BLUE%^ti%^MAGENTA%^c%^RESET%^ leather cloak with a neck strap but otherwise hangs loosely on the shoulders and flows down to cover the entiere body. The leather is of a strange shimmering %^BOLD%^%^RED%^Pr%^ORANGE%^is%^GREEN%^ma%^BLUE%^ti%^MAGENTA%^c%^RESET%^ quality, when worn or touched, instead of a texture, it feels like touching something in a dream. Where its more like a remembered sense of what it should feel like then what it actually does. When you move, the fabric flows and flares sometimes in a delayed fashion and sometimes accelerated.

Special user view (what the wielder/wearer sees when the special goes off) (Attacker) seems distracted by your cloal.
Special target view (what the target sees when the special goes off) (Defender's) cloak flares and a long forgotten terrifying nightmare or wonderous dream flashes within its prismatic folds. You are lost for a moment as memories of the dream/nightmare consume you/you push aside such distractions and focus on your task.
Special bystander view (what someone else in the room sees when the special goes off) Defender's cloak flares and (Attacker) seems distracted.
Effect: Occasionally the cape will force an easy dc will save, if the save is failed the targetted enemy will be stunned for a round.
